Large scale 3D printing
#2
Can't open the link properly on my iPad (having internet issues) but I saw an idea like this a while ago for rapid construction. The concept was for a modified truck to approach a lot where foundations had been dug, unfold into a large printer and pipe modified concrete from a second truck to print a building in a matter of days.

It's intriguing although I wonder if it will ever catch on. Personally I've always thought that one way materials science and rapid custom manufacturing could revolutionise architecture would be the design and creation of flat pack buildings. Slot supports and panels for walls, floor and ceiling and away you go.
